Family owned company
With over 40 years of experience in the development and production of high-quality candles, Kerzenfarm has established itself as one of the leading medium-sized companies in the national candle industry. Located in Nienbüttel, a small village in northern Germany – near to the town of Wacken (WOA) – Kerzenfarm currently employs more than 40 people in production, shipping and administration. Thanks to participation in six international and national trade fairs in Germany, including the Biofach in Nuremberg, Kerzenfarm has built a global customer base.
Handmade in Germany
With great attention to detail the majority of our candles are made by hand in our factory in Nienbüttel, using a variety of waxes in many different shapes and sizes. A quiet burn, long burn-time, smokeless and non-dripping are essential qualities of high quality candles, and are a matter of course for us. Kerzenfarm sources high quality raw materials such as wicks, dyes and waxes exclusively from within the Federal Republic of Germany. All three raw materials are RAL-certified and thus meet the high quality requirements that are common across Europe.
We value ecological
For more than 10 years, Kerzenfarm has been producing candles from renewable raw materials such as beeswax, rapeseed wax, sunflower wax and palm wax. Our hand-poured scented candles
are produced with natural essential oils and natural scented ingredients only.
Take on social responsibility
As a contribution to the preservation of our livelihoods, Kerzenfarm has set itself the goal of a complete CO₂-neutral production.
With the installation of a large Photovoltaic (PV) system on our new warehouse – which is expanded annually –Kerzenfarm has succeeded in obtaining more than 50% of the electrical energy required for its production from the sun. Further investment in renewable energies is being planned.
In addition Kerzenfarm enables sustainable mobility for every employee. Purely electrically powered vehicles are leased or purchased for this purpose. The availability of e‑vehicles for every employee is a long-term goal, with the prerequisite that green electricity is also used in the private sector.
Free car-charging is offered to every employee during the working day. The electricity for the charging station is primarily generated from our PV Systems. Currently, Kerzenfarm has a fleet of 18 electric vehicles.
We sincerely hope that many more companies will follow our example for the benefit of the environment.
